How We Are Reducing Ocean Waste Plastic

Our hope is to turn this ….

 

Back to this …

We are proud to announce that Kevin Murphy will be re-working packaging on their square-shaped bottles to be made from 100% recycled ocean waste plastic. It’s true; they will be the first ever beauty brand to implement this practice, and they are hoping to start an industry-wide conversation about the heart of the issue: safe packaging disposal. As a salon, we are committed to doing what we can to keep our planet as beautiful as the day it was created. Through their new project, they have projected to save the planet over 360 tons of new plastic each year. We are excited to be a Northern Virginia salon committed to helping with reducing ocean waste plastics through this initiative.

Every minute of every day, one garbage truck full of plastic is dumped into our oceans, which has led to over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently littering our beautiful water and affecting its sea life. Every piece of plastic that has ever been made – ever – is still here on our planet, and currently only 9% of our world’s plastics are recycled. KEVIN.MURPHY is committed to changing these statistics and reducing plastic in the best way they know how: by cleaning up our oceans and reclaiming that plastic to package their hair products in order to create a circular supply chain. They call this responsible packaging, and we encourage you to get involved.

As part of the KEVIN.MURPHY brand commitment to The Choices We Make, their latest initiative is a reflection of their unwavering attention to our environment through everything they do. This is an urgent call-to-action to help protect our vast oceans and marine life. Through this new initiative, KEVIN.MURPHY is aiming to change the industry standard on packaging.

KILLER.WAVES

by Kyrsti Ashmall

WHO IS THIS PRODUCT FOR: Those with fine hair that requires definition and volume. This product is weightless, invisible and is as light as air. For coarser curl management, check out KILLER.CURLS.

The newest CURL on our block is here: KILLER.WAVES. This weightless wave-enhancer is your one-stop-shop to add volume, texture and definition for your locks, and will give you that effortless “mermaid hair” you’ve been dreaming of. KILLER.WAVES was created with the curl-haired girl in mind, as each and every curly and wavy head of hair is unique, and no two heads are the same.

Our new KILLER.WAVES uses the same technology that is used to thicken and lengthen eyelashes in order to make your waves feel and look fuller, weightlessly. Infused with Baobab Seed Extract, Hibiscus Flower Extract and Yerba Mate, our favourite new wave-maker moisturises and maintains your curls and waves while fighting frizz, adding strength and offering overall protection and manageability for your ‘doo.

Just as curly and wavy hair is personal, so is the combination of products needed to keep it just so. KILLER.WAVES acts as the foundation product to lift and volumise your hair, giving you the flexibility to create a routine that is as unique as your curl.

Ingredient Spotlight: Kakadu Plum

by Kyrsti Ashmall

Wave goodbye to dry hair with our HYDRATE regimen, which is formulated with a blend of powerful antioxidants and vitamins to nourish and moisturize your hair. Our ingredient spotlight this month is on Kakadu Plum, a super-fruit native to the Northern Australian Territory.

Rich in nutrients, Kakadu Plum contains a blend of powerful antioxidants and is known as the world’s highest source of Vitamin C. To the taste, this fruit has a sweet flavor with a pleasant bitterness at the end — but please don’t eat our HYDRATE-ME.WASH, RINSE, or MASQUE!

In addition, the Kakadu Plum found in HYDRATE-ME.WASH, RINSE and MASQUE is considered eco-friendly, as our source of this ingredient has developed innovative practices that ensure a sustainable approach in the extraction and manufacturing of this super-fruit. Our source practices green chemistry innovation, including a sustainable extraction process with friendly solvents and waste limitation. In addition they work on biotechnology processes to offer renewable sources so as not to disrupt biodiversity, and they use bi-products from the food industry to limit waste. Among many other practices, they also protect endemic species by using harvest cultures and encouraging replanting.

Together with the other ingredients in our HYDRATE regimen, Kakadu Plum helps to smooth the surface of the hair and lock in moisture. To learn more about our HYDRATE regimen, click here.

What’s Inside KILLER.CURLS?

Killer Curls
Kevin Murphy recently shared some of the ins-and-outs of what makes the KILLER.CURLS product so great! We love sharing knowledge with you about our favorite products, and are excited to share these tidbits on KILLER.CURLS!

As you guys know, we love to talk about the natural ingredients in the Kevin Murphy line — ingredients such as honey, pomegranate and shea butter. You may scratch your head, though, when you run into words like Polyurethane-14, AMP-Acrylates Copolymer and Sodium Polystyrene Sulfonate found in KILLER.CURLS. These are, shall we say, rather geeky names for substances which are actually extremely gentle and super beneficial for your hair! In fact, Polyurethane-14 and AMP-Acrylates Copolymer are “anionic ingredients found in many hair sprays, gels, mousses, lotions, pomades and other styling aids” which provide very strong, yet flexible hold. Sodium Polystrene Sulfonate is a high molecular weight sodium salt — versatile and used in many hair and skin products. SPS creates a “clear, flexible film that shrinks upon drying, quickly dissipates electric charge, remains stable among temperatures exceeding 300°C, and helps to reduce surface tension.” All of those amazing qualities equates to enhancing curl in your hair while allowing the curl to remain flexible with a lasting hold.

Curious about KILLER.CURLS? Ask your SK stylist for more information or pick up a mini on your next visit to Salon Khouri!

Kevin Murphy Hair Color Ingredient Spotlight: Pomegranate

We are SO in love with the Kevin Murphy hair color line and so are our SK Enthusiasts! They love how soft their hair feels, they love the depth and dimension of the Kevin Murphy color, they love the smell (yes, Kevin Murphy color actually smells GOOD because it has good things in it!).

We wanted to share a little about some of the ingredients in the Kevin Murphy color line. One of them is pomegranate. Pomegranate is known for it’s anti-inflammatory effects as well as for being a strong antioxidant and therefore anti-aging. As such, it’s the perfect ingredient to include in the Kevin Murphy color line!

According to wikipedia, the name pomegranate derives from medieval Latin pōmum “apple” and grānātum “seeded”. Possibly stemming from the old French word for the fruit, pomme-grenade, the pomegranate was known in early English as “apple of Grenada”—a term which today survives only in heraldic blazons.

The pomegranate juice in Kevin Murphy hair color comes from Turkey, Iran and Israel, and the extraction and concentration process is done in Italy. Most often seen in hand creams and lotions, Pomegranate is used as an invigorating and awakening agent for the hair and skin. In Kevin Murphy color, the Pomegranate works together with Honey, Shea Butter, Rose Hip and Aloe Vera to protect the integrity of your hair and ensure long-lasting color results!

Kevin Murphy Hair Color

This January, we are offering $10 in SK Cash toward your first hair color service! This includes color, highlights, lowlights, color or balayage! Offer expires Jan 31, 2018 and is not valid with other offers or promotions. Valid at our Fairfax and Dulles locations.

BedroomHair_1-2

Ingredient Spotlight: Immortelle

YoungAgain

Did you know there is perennial called Immortelle, or Helichrysum Stoechas, that is rich in antioxidants? Our Kevin Murphy YOUNG.AGAIN line uses extract of the Immortelle flower to help restore youthful vitality to your hair that we lose as we age. Helichrysum means ‘sun gold’ in Latin, and is a perfect description of this beautifully vibrant, yellow-gold flower that is strong enough to survive the common drought and strong winds found in the mountains of Portugal and Spain where Immortelle thrives.

Immortelle

Immortelle, along with Burdock Root Extract, Safflower Seed Oil, and Sugar Cane Extract are used in YOUNG.AGAIN to protect your hair from damage and to restore vitality. And, the Immortelle used in YOUNG.AGAIN is certified organic! Learn more at LoveKevinMurphy.
